    Time OUT

    Several who watch much more or all of the games than myself have mentioned, "why doesn't Kellie call timeouts with greater frequency." Some reasons for using timeouts include: Teaching points to correct the player(s) back to what they were taught in practice, or regarding the approach outlined...

    Lady Vols 24 "Turnovers" - 3 Quarters

    If you do not move: 1. chances of your getting the ball on offense are lessened. 2. and you do not keep the other team guessing causing them distraction, as they do not know your next move. 3. the defense is not going to become weary or worn down. 4. plus, not coming to help your teammate move...

    Game Thread: #24/25 TENNESSEE VS. ALABAMA

    First time have watched most all of a game this year. They NEED to work on passing. To mannnny errant, lazy,& telegraphed passes. Otherwise, I like their direction as a team.

    Chemistry has emerged as one of Lady Vols' biggest strengths

    Yes, and if it is not a big part of Kellie's nature to be real leader, as Pat, this won't last. However, I think it is...Recalling my Chemistry at UTK, the Chemist sets up, watches, & guides the process. So, the product is dependent upon both the ingredient players & the coaching Chemist. The...

    LoL ..Actually, I think Coach J only wishes he were on the staff in some way, even not instructing, which is a passion for him. However, Coach J is one of the more valuable contributors of the site, as are you...

    Could meditation help Kasi become a more focused shooter?

    Along the lines of meditation & visualization, I was told a story of a boys basketball coach who took on a group of poor free throw shooters, & rather than demonstrate & teach technique, & then have them practice after that, he chose to have them sit down, close their eyes, & visualize shooting...

    Game Thread: #23/24 TENNESSEE VS. #1/1 STANFORD

    "Kind of player" and kind of person- get along while giving their all for the team, or are they something else not so desirable though really talented? Also, on IQ: Basketball IQ is certainly not necessarily a high ACT, nor a straight A student. For instance, Larry Bird once said he might be a...

    Game Thread: #23/24 TENNESSEE VS. #1/1 STANFORD

    I agree. A school that seems to be smarter than most which comes out in their play is Notre Dame. Most years I would rather watch them than about any school because they play as a team, and know what they individually can do, and are to provide in the scheme of things. There are higher...
